First of all, Pakistan is not one of the most dangerous places in the world, if you go to Detroit in Michigan, it is 10 times more dangerous than the entire country of Pakistan (I would know because my family is from there and I have visited many times to both places!) and second this book is all wrong, he said he built 14 schools when he only built 4 schools, and the villagers didn't carry him down to their village to take care of him, he went to them and asked to stay! I do not recomend reading his lies!
Perhaps the best non-fiction book I have read recently is Three cup of tea. It is a beautifully written. Same time it is also a critically important and truly remarkable tale of an inspiring account of how one man former mountaineer and military veteran can make a difference. I have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone who likes real-life adventure and inspiring stories. Greg Martenson represents the best of his nation, he is really hero
thank you Greg
i found this story very inspiring. It goes to show that there are really some people in this world that really do make a difference. I read this book as a requirement for college and I really enjoyed it. It has really inspired me to stand up and make a difference. I plan to travel to Kenya next spring.
First thing is first, if you have bought this book burn it or terminate it from your presence.
Here's How to Help
second, this is the worst book ever, I stopped reading after the first chapter. the book described every detail other than building the schools, and...
Third, where are the schools? He spent more on the book tour than the schools. what a selfish...
I'll let you finish the book and make your own adjective.
This was an enlightening book, no doubt. If you have read the book--or even if you haven't--and are itching to contribute in a way that does not require much sacrifice, I have a way for you:

From the reading, we can tell that the smallest portions of money can make a difference. Proceeds go directly to the cause in the most efficient way possible. A penny for a pencil and dollar pays a teacher's salary for one day. Goodsearch works by donating approximately one cent for every time you search and a couple percents every time you buy online and does this from the revenue generated by advertisements. This book is truthful and full of integrity and hopefully inspires us to help the underprivileged.
Three Cups of Tea is about Greg Mortenson and how one day he was climbing K2-the world’s second highest mountain- in honor of his younger sister Christa, but things go wrong as he gets lost. Greg wanders and wanders until he came to a poor village, where Haji Ali (the chief) takes him in and comforts him. Moved by Haji Ali’s and the villagers kindness, Greg promises to come back and build a school. This is the remarkable story of how he encounters all the problem and builds not only one but sixty schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan especially for girls during the Taliban.
Three Cups of Tea is a must-read
I liked the fact that this was a real life story written like a chapter book. The book was so interesting that i couldn’t put it down because of all the adventures and problems he had. It was quite surprising at some of the parts especially when he encountered problem. This book makes you feel Greg’s happiness, sadness and anger. All around it was a very good book.
I would recommend this book to kids and adults because it show how you can help promote peace and education to the world. If we all do our part, the world may start to heal. You can understand the book quite easily without any hesitation for any work except for the balti words.
Here is of how one man with the determination to honor his word to reward a kindness shown him can change the way of life for nations we need as friends. It is a simple yet enormously difficult task. However one which must be done if we are to ever stop the morass which has existed in the middle-east for thousands of years. Only through these simple acts can advances be made to overcome the senseless slaughter of innocents. Should be required reading for every American regardless of religious, political or ethnic background. Greg Mortenson shows the way and should be recognized as a genuine American Hero.
worst book ever
"Greg, you're definitely one of mine. Thank you." I'm 76 years old.
Three Cups of Tea was the most boring book I have ever read. I had to read it for a book report and I literally fell asleep 4 times while reading it .
